Thanksgiving gathering recommendations changed, another press conference today

Gov. Tim Walz, state health department officials and healthcare professionals made an impassioned plea during a press conference yesterday afternoon, to control the spread of COVID-19.

Another press conference by the governor is scheduled this afternoon.

Recommendations for family gatherings around Thanksgiving have changed, with health experts now saying it is too risky to gather for Thanksgiving meals in-person with people outside the household.

Today’s presser will include Minnesotans who have been impacted by COVID-19, and will be streamed on YouTube.
